Sands Cares Supports MPI International in Inaugural 5K Fun Run

What do you get when you combine colorful knee high socks, bright headbands and over 100 hospitality professionals? … a 5K Fun Run of course!

On April 18th, the VenetianPalazzo and Sands Expo group sales and operations Team Members, led by Vice President of Sales Chandra Allison, came out to support MPI International and their first-ever Las Vegas 5k Challenge. MPI is the world’s largest association for the meeting and event industry offering education, professional development and leadership training to thousands of professionals around the globe who believe in the power of connecting people.

The fun run was an untimed event focused on camaraderie and philanthropic efforts for hospitality professionals in the Las Vegas area. Our team members represented the largest group at the race and through Sands Cares, our corporate responsibility program, we donated $1,550 to support the association. The day started with some stretching, mixed with light conversation and ended with smiles across the finish line. These team members continue to show their passion and zest for this industry.
